Hey B&C! I did a project log for my HH world eaters and really enjoyed getting the feedback and general motivation is provided for me to keep on top of my hobby game. So, now i'm going to make one for my 40k army. When 8th coming out i decided i wanted to do something new and really loved the primaris models, plus i don't have a loyalist army yet so i figured, why not?
At the same time my buddy is starting a 1k sons army for 8E, so I have envisioned my primaris marines being dispatched to hunt down 1k sons after the battle on luna as a sort of retribution force. I'm going classic 2nd company with a build that has some anti-pysker elements from the assassinorum.
On to the pics!
All blue'd up. I did the red helms on the sargents separately before building them.
There is about a mile of edges to highlight on each model, takes me about an hour so i'm liking the results. Quite a bit different from the feel of my heresy world eaters, which were for the most part dry brushed to get a smoother shading gradient. That has a much more bold/dynamic finish than i'm liking. I'm anxious to get one totally done and see how they look, but i'm trying to stick with an assembly line for now...other than the gold on the sarge, couldn't resist!
The second model went a little more smoothly and i'm liking the results more each time i see it.
Haven't decided on whether to do black or brown for the leather parts. I have been able to paint brown leather better than black leather in the past, but i like the look of the black from the box art.
Stay tuned for more updates! From an army buildout stand point i'm going to add the two primaris characters that were just released and the dreadnaught and hover tank. Other than that i'm going to wait for the codex and take a look and all the offerings, but i imagine i'll be getting all the primaris models.
